Fontina Val D'Aosta is the original Fontina, made from cow's milk. This is a semi- soft Italian cheese with a mild sweet flavor.
Fontina is the symbol of agriculture in Italy's tiny, French speaking Aosta Valley region. The cows that produce the milk for Fontina Val d'Aosta graze on high-altitude Alpine pastures dotted with wildflowers and native herbs. Fontina is a great cooking cheese, as it melts evenly without losing any flavor. Extremely aromatic (some might say "stinky"), Fontina is best noted for its value as a savory and fruity table cheese. Its slightly grassy flavor embodies the taste of a true raw milk cheese.
Made from unpasteurized cow's milk, aged 90 days.
Excellent for use in fondues, cheese creams, great melting cheese, au gratin dishes and macaroni and cheese!
